Use GradeMark with an Assignment

Using GradeMark for assignment submissions

  1. On the Turnitin tab, enable GradeMark by checking the box next to "Enable Grademark® for this folder." Under the transfer options, click the radio button you'd like to use:
    • Automatically sync grades as Draft in Brightspace - this will allow Grademark to automatically push grades to D2L, but they will be in draft mode.
    • Manually sync grades as Draft in Brightspace - this requires you to manually push the grades to D2L.
